About Song for the Defenders of Iwo Jima:

Iwo To known in English as Iwo Jima is one of the Japanese Volcano Islands and lies south of the Bonin Islands. Together with other islands, they form the Ogasawara Archipelago. The highest point of Iwo Jima is Mount Suribachi at 161 m (528 ft) high.

This island was very important to Japanese mainland security

In the Battle of Iwo Jima, United States Marine Corps landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) during World War II.

The American invasion, designated Operation Detachment, had the goal of capturing the entire island, including the three Japanese-controlled airfields, to provide a staging area for attacks on the Japanese main islands.

Lyrics

taiheiyo no nami no ue
teito no minami sen yo kiro
ukabu chiisana ichi koto
ima nippon no kouhai wo
kessuru yosho Iwo Jima

warera kono chi ni aru kagiri
hondo ha yasusi eien ni
nippon danji no na wo tosite
kunan ni kachite mamorinuku
homare mo takaki Iwo Jima

太平洋の波の上
帝都の南千余キロ
浮かぶ小さな一孤島
今日本の興廃を
決する要衝、

硫黄島 われらこの地にある限り
本土は安し永遠に
日本男児の名を賭して
苦難に克ちて護り抜く
誉れも高き 硫黄島
